[...] the network of tasks that form the longest chain is now the critical chain, but there are other solutions that can assist with task chains that are not on the critical network. These are called feeder chains and the buffers that are created from their 50% confidence factor (CF) reductions are placed at the end of these chains BEFORE they rejoin the critical chain.

(Recommended) "My Saga to Improve Production" by Eli Goldratt - 8 pages | Goldratt Marketing Group | Misc | Scoop.it
Eliyahu M. Goldratt, 1996. "In 1982, I was chairman and a major shareholder of a company ranked by Inc. Magazine as the sixth fastest growing company in the United States. And I was extremely frustrated. Many dozens of clients had bought our production scheduling software and, guided by our associated education, had successfully implemented it. I was frustrated that we didn’t have thousands of such clients. No, I don’t think that I was greedy or overly ambitious. I had very good reasons to expect that every plant would embrace our package with open arms.[...]

Free Technology for Teachers: Dozens of Alternatives to YouTube | Misc | Scoop.it
“ Over the last few years I've seen more schools opening up access to YouTube, at least to teachers, than I had in the past. YouTube for Schools has partially contributed to that trend. Tools like ViewPure and Watchkin have made using YouTube videos in schools a little less scary too. All that said, there are still lots of schools that block access to YouTube. That's why a few years ago I started to maintain a list of alternatives to YouTube.”

Although several excellent books have been published [...] dealing with Critical Chain theory, practical instruction in "how to" implement Critical Chain with the highest probability of success and sustainability has been conspicuously lacking. The opportunity to bridge this knowledge gap has now been provided by the advent of Goldratt's Strategy and Tactics trees. The Critical Chain Implementation Handbook is the definitive guide for implementing CCPM the way Eli Goldratt intended - the S&T way.

Philip Marris's curator insight, June 11, 2014 7:20 AM

Another description of the book:

Critical Chain Project Management has been widely practiced as a breakthrough improvement for project planning and execution since the publication of Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt's seminal book "Critical Chain" in 1997. Although several excellent books have been published in the interim dealing with Critical Chain Theory, practical instruction in "how to" implement Critical Chain with the highest probability of success and sustainability has been conspicuously lacking. The opportunity to bridge this knowledge gap has now been provided by the advent of Goldratt's Strategy and Tactics trees.
The Critical Chain Implementation Handbook is the definitive guide for implementing CCPM the way Eli Goldratt Intended - the S&T way. The Projects S&T tree and the concepts in this book have been developed, tested and proven in the field, much of which with Dr. Goldratt's direct involvement.
The S&T logic brings us not only the "what" of Critical Chain implementation success, but also the "how" and the "why." Now at last, every kind of organization can learn how to create a robust, mistake-free, and long lasting Critical Chain Projects organization.

What's a Makerspace - Makerspace.com

What's a Makerspace - Makerspace.com | Misc | Scoop.it
"To describe them simply, makerspaces are community centers with tools. Makerspaces combine manufacturing equipment, community, and education for the purposes of enabling community members to design, prototype and create manufactured works that wouldn’t be possible to create with the resources available to individuals working alone. These spaces can take the form of loosely-organized individuals sharing space and tools, for-profit companies, non-profit corporations, organizations affiliated with or hosted within schools, universities or libraries, and more. All are united in the purpose of providing access to equipment, community, and education, and all are unique in exactly how they are arranged to fit the purposes of the community they serve. Makerspaces represent the democratization of design, engineering, fabrication and education. They are a fairly new phenomenon, but are beginning to produce projects with significant national impacts."
